2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
14/11/2010 - 33cl bottle @ home
Pours a cloudy dark orange beer. Big head on pouring, disappears fast, no lacing. Aroma: very pronounced yeast smell, sour, fruity, some hops. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet malty, almost sugary. Tender yet flavourful hoppy, spices, mouth warming alcohol, citrus. Aftertaste: still the numbing alcohol in the back of the throat, citrus fruits, some spices and dried fruits. Not bad, but not exactly exciting either.

Tap at Max’s Belgian Fest 2010. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is doughy light biscuit and bready malts, lemon zest and Belgian phenolic spice-- light clove and lemongrass, with white wine and salty hints. Flavor is toast, earth, leather turns to wet dog dander-like- wirey and ropey, with some light tartness in the finish- starts good, ends not so good.

Draft at Maxs. Pours a golden body with white head. Metallic notes, keg infection? Fruity yeast, apple cider vinegar, hints of honey combs and a weird cider finish. Odd, i love the honey esk tones.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Quinns, Camden. Poured a slightly hazy orangey gold colour with a good sized dissiapting chef’s hat white head. Malt heavy aroma with a trace of coriander and honey. Quite lively carbonation. Flavour was pretty darn sweet but had a likeable fruitiness and a reasonable balance to it that gave it marks for drinkability. Teeters on the precipice of being cloying but just manages to pull through. Not something I’d want to drink too much of, but an enjoyable tripel nonetheless.
